Mosaic by Mathias Waller in Görlitzer Park Berlin

Mathias Waller has created a new mosaic in Kreuzberg’s Görlitzer Park near our offices in Berlin. Appropriately embedded in the side of the Turkish Fountain ruins, the piece is quite large, like Waller’s other bottle cap mosaics. In summer, he had some temporary urban art pieces embedded directly in the sandy pathway in front of the Das Edelweiss cafe. The new more permanent piece is directly across from the cafe. Now that the snow has started melting, time to get out and take a look!

Here are photos from the temporary mosaic from summer, 2012. Portrait of artist Mathias Waller placing bottle caps into his ground mosaic in Görlitzer Park, Berlin Germany. The temporary piece was in the ground in Görlitzer Park for over a week. Thousands of bottle caps went into the art work, every one of them set into the sandy earth by Waller himself.
